CES BlogHaus, how to get in

OK, so it turns out that the CES BlogHaus is in the Bellagio, but up on a floor that security won’t let you get to unless you have a pass.

This will be a fun place to hang out in. Not to mention that it’ll be a good place to get on the ScobleShow.

It’ll be open 24 hours a day. It’s for bloggers. Yes, we’ll check.

Anyway, the details on the BlogHaus are over on PodTech — just leave a comment over there to get added to the list so you’ll be able to get in.

Oh, and I think it was Steve Broback of Blog Business Summit that said we should rename the Bellagio to “Blogio.” Um, no. 🙂

Have no idea what “CES” is? Consumer Electronics Show. Happens January 8-11 in  Las Vegas. It’s America’s biggest trade show — all about gadgets and stuff.

Translation: it’s the best chance you’ll have to share a beer with someone from Engadget or Gizmodo.


“I need more storage so that” Seagate contest

One of the things I offered Seagate with them sponsoring my show is a contest. I designed this with Valerie and Linda and a few others at PodTech.

Got a stack of Seagate hard drives to give away. What’s the contest?

Blog about what you are going to do with a new hard drive. Details and rules and stuff are over here.

So, if I was able to enter, here’s probably what my entry would look like:

Let’s see, I’m doing a lot of video lately. I’ve already filled up two 500GB drives with ScobleShow videos, along with a few of Patrick goofing around, and about 43GBs of photos. One of which has Maryam flipping me off cause I made her walk up a steep hill to take that picture of me next to the tree above (true story, it was our honeymoon).

Anyway, things are getting pretty tight. I have about 1.1GBs of email from the six months I’ve worked at PodTech, including 118MBs of just people wanting me to blog stuff (true story #2, I wish I had more time to get to everyone).

Anyway, let’s just cut the crap. I need more space so I can download Dawn and Drew for my son. ZeFrank and Rocketboom for me.

Oh, who am I kidding? Of course it’s for porn.

Oh, get your mind out of the gutter. Not THAT kind of porn.

“Well, what kind?”


Please, Seagate, send me a new hard drive so I can load up all that foodporn and I can satiate myself looking at all those luscious videos of sushi. Of course, maybe I’ll cheat and download some of those chocolat videos.


Disclaimer, Seagate sponsors my show and are sponsoring the BlogHaus at CES and I really appreciate that.
